Who is now causing me a few headaches!!! What do you do with a 5 metre long dinosaur, who is afraid of the wet? Our classroom is too small to display him safely...we could put him in the main hall but there is a problem of where and how. Does anyone have any suggestions?
Dippy the Diplodocus.
He is the result of the design ability, teamwork and determination of 29 year 5 and 6 children (ages 10-11 years). My only input was to give them the materials available to them, teach them which glues would work best for which part, and the options we would have for joining the sections together. Every subsequent design decision was made by them.
What a character!
Not bad for a class with 8 different languages; two year groups, and one slightly bonkers teacher! Thankfully my wonderful teaching assistant attempts to keep us under control (when she is not encouraging us to go even further!!).
Additional Pictures for your perusal.

A big thank you to my other half (computer whiz and photo-shopper extraordinaire) for the amazing panoramic picture.
Just to show I didn't need to hide under a table to cry, afterall.
